ALAN SHEN

San Francisco, CA

I'm a product design leader that loves consumer digital entertainment experiences. My work has primarily involved envisioning interactive entertainment experiences for televisions, mobile, web, and game consoles. I love working on platforms and figuring out how to enable the best work from designers to create magical experiences.

I've been deeply involved with launching initiatives such as the Xbox 360, Zune, Zune Originals, Kinect for Xbox 360, Xbox Smartglass, and Hulu Plus and YouTube for Xbox Live. In 2013, I joined LG Electronics and managed the design team responsible for the LG webOS Smart TV platform announced at CES in January 2014. Since then, I've held design leadership positions with Atheer Labs and Google Fiber.

I'm originally from Toronto, Canada, and I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Physics from the University of Waterloo. After living in the Seattle-area for 15 years, I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in May, 2011 where I resides today.

When I'm not playing around with gadgets, listening to music, or catching up with my favorite sports teams, you can find me on Xbox Live as YoYoMama.

My Motto: Ask for forgiveness, not permission...
